Optical Image Stabilization
Sigma 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM S features an optical image stabilization system which helps to reduce the blur that occurs due to shaking during hand-held shooting.
Sigma 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM S features Rotary (extending)
zoom method where the length of the lens changes as you zoom in or out. This makes it possible to design the lens with a smaller minimum length ( generally when it is zoomed out) compared to internal zoom lenses. The disadvantages of this design are being harder to seal against dust and moisture, weight balance shifting while zooming and zoom creep in certain lenses.
Sigma 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM S has a Zoom lock
feature which eliminates Zoom creep where focal length of the lens changes with gravity when it's held downwards or upwards.
Maximum Magnification Ratio
Sigma 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM S has a Max Magnification Ratio of 0.3x
and has a minimum focusing distance of 0.6m
